"Chef Konstantinos Pitsillides has created the restaurant of his dreams and ours...He cooks with passion, without fear, and won't dumb down what he believes to be great food." - Collin Flatt, www.Phoodie.info "The dishes at Kanella are as authentic as those you would savor in Greece or Cyprus." - Phyllis Stein-Novack, South Philly Review "Pitsillides is good at this, weaving meals of deft little surprises. It makes Kanella one of the year's most refreshing debuts." - Adam Erace food editor Philadelphia Weekly "We have precious few chefs so devoted to celebrating rustic ethnic cooking with the blend of passion, attention to detail, and culinary skill that Pitsillides has. " Craig LaBan, Inquirer Restaurant Critic "It's honest, good food. If there's a gimmick here, it's that what you see is what you get. " - Elisa Ludwig, Philadelphia City Paper "....all food lovers should rejoice that Pitsillides came back with a restaurant all his own." - Joy Manning, Philadelphia Magazine


Sadly we have ceased our Sunday cooking class for the time being to open up the dining room for Sunday night family style dining.

We now serve Cypriot meze from 5 - 9pm on Sunday evenings.

We hope to find a way to bring the coooking classes back, but until then please come and enjoy our fun and delicious Sunday night dinner.
